tv Late Night With Seth Meyers NBC April 20, 2016 12:37am-1:38am PDT
[ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> announcer: from 30 rockefeller plaza in new york, it's "late night with seth meyers." tonight -- olivia wilde star of, "peewee's big holiday" paul reubens, music from joywave, featuring the 8g band with fred armisen. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] ladies and gentlemen, seth meyers. >> seth: good evening, i'm seth meyers this is, "late night." how is everybody doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] all right, in that case, let's get to the news. two women were arrested at a bernie sanders rally in l.a. yesterday for removing their tops and revealing the words, "feel the bern," written on
their naked bodies. so even if bernie doesn't beat hillary, he could still end up getting picked to replace zayn. [ laughter ] yeah. people on wall street are worried about the negative effects of a donald trump presidency. also worried, people on every street. [ laughter ] all the streets. [ cheers and applause ] every one of the streets. cul-de-sacs? cul-de-sacs? yes, also cul-de-sacs. [ laughter ] dr. ben carson appeared on "the view" this morning. and when asked afterwards what he thought of, "the view," he said, "blurry." [ laughter ] always blurry. my answer for all things, is "blurry." [ laughter ] a new poll shows that 55% of voters say hillary clinton is more presidential than donald trump. i think in terms of who's most presidential it goes by this -- barack obama, hillary clinton, john kasich, everybody else in the world, donald trump, and turtle from "entourage."
[ laughter and applause ] they flip, every now and those two flip. the latest national poll shows bernie sanders and hillary clinton are in an effective tie for support from democratic voters. not in an effective tie? bernie sanders neck. [ light laughter ] your tepid response does not change that that's my favorite joke of the night. just so you know. [ applause ] he calls it a knot, 'cause it's "knot" touching his neck. [ laughter ] last night, former new york city mayor, rudy giuliani said hillary clinton could be considered a founding member of isis. that's ridiculous, isis doesn't hire women. [ laughter ] that's like their big thing. the super-pac supporting hillary clinton has already started reserving $70 million in
tv ads set to air during the lead up to the general election. of course, if all it took was ad time, this would be our president. [ laughter and applause ] a new study shows that starting the day by bathing in cold water can increase fat loss and male fertility -- said your landlord. [ laughter ] [ weird accent ] "no it's good, cold water is good, this is good for you. trust me, you'd be lucky to have such cold water." [ laughter ] you complain, and complain, and complain." [ laughter ] and that was, i think, all the accents at once. [ laughter ] a formerly single mother in australia has married the sperm donor that contributed to the conception of her child. which means that in a few years that man can sit that kid down and say, "son, i remember the night you were conceived. i was looking at a picture of kate upton." [ light laughter ] [ laughter ]
i told our head writer, they weren't gonna like it! [ laughter ] he said, "no, i'm the head writer." i said, "all right, i'm just the host, what do i know, i just tell 'em every night." [ laughter ] a florida gun rights activist may be sentenced to jail time after her 4-year-old accidentally got ahold of her weapon and shot her while driving. and whatever happens, they will be stopping for ice cream next time. [ laughter and applause ] and finally, researchers have studied a fish in thailand and found that it has developed bones on it's pelvis that can allow it to walk -- and sing. [ laughter ] ladies and gentlemen, we have a great show for you tonight! [ cheers and applause ] we have some friends on the show tonight. the star of hbo's, "vinyl." olivia wilde is back on the show. [ cheers and applause ] and simply put, there's no other
way to put it, we have a legend on the show tonight. he is the star of netflix's new movie, "pee-wee's big holiday." paul reubens is on the show tonight. [ cheers and applause ] and we will have music from a great indie-rock band. they've been here before, we're so happy to have them back, joywave will be on the show tonight. [ cheers and applause ] so -- we have a great show. but there was some very-sad news in the world of comedy and the world in general. garry shandling passed away today. garry shandling was a legendary comedian and i never had the chance to get to know him, but i heard he was a great guy. and the thing -- we just want to say a few things about him. he did, "the larry sanders show." which was completely groundbreaking, and changed the way i thought about tv. and i think, a lot of people thought about tv. and it was a show about a fictional character who hosted a talk show. a talk show like this. and growing up, you know, watching carson, letterman, and conan. those were all people that made me want to host a talk show. watching, "the larry sanders show" made me think, "oh, i don't think i want to host a
talk show. [ laughter ] i think that looks like a very scary place to work." but i was talking to olivia backstage. when i lived in chicago after college i was sort of, in this improv community. and jason suidekis was there as well, and before we were on snl together, i didn't really know jason. but one of the things i knew about him in the improv community was he had vhs tapes of the larry sanders show. and that was a big deal back then. [ laughter ] you wanted to be friends with the guy who had the vhs tapes of the larry sanders show. before any of us had -- because none of us could afford hbo, we were lucky to have a vcr. um -- and another thing is, that one of the things on that show i remember, is, his producer artie, sometimes would say, because larry, the character larry was very neurotic. he would ask him how the show was, and he would say, "it's not 'best of larry'." meaning that if there would have been a best of, the show would not have anything that would make it. and i cannot tell you -- the times, whenever i walk off, there are shows where you know,
maybe it's not the level that you want the show to be. and i will always think to myself, "welp, not 'best of larry.'" [ laughter ] and it makes me feel so much better knowing that people who do jobs like this, or who have done jobs like this, all had felt the same way at any given time. but anyways, i just recommend everybody go back and watch that show. if there's any good that can come out of it, it would be the rediscovery of what really, truly was a classic. and give it up for garry shandling, he will really be missed. [ applause ] >> seth: moving on. you know, i don't know about you guys, i am so happy. because it is finally spring time. you know, the winter is over and let's be honest that is a bit -- i'm sorry? i could be wrong here, but i think i smell smoke. that could mean one thing, it is time for, "ya burnt!"
♪ >> seth: woo! welcome to the burn zone, we got a lot of topics to cycle through, not a lot of time. over here is the burner, let's turn on the gas and load 'er up. [ light laughter ] woo! that's hot. first up, binge watching! i get why people binge-watch. but why do they brag about it? [ laughter ] no one comes to work on monday and says "this weekend i ate all the oreos!" [ laughter ] and what ever happened to seeing something you love just once a week? it seems to work fine for divorced dads. [ audience ohs ] [ light laughter ] also netflix, i know you're trying to be helpful, but could you not automatically start the next episode during the credits? you're like a seventh beer showing up at the end of a six pack going, "are you sure you don't want another?" [ laughter ] and every few episodes you ask me if i'm still watching. even you think i might be dead. binge watching? more like, "singed watching," 'cause ya burnt! [ laughter and applause ] chip-enabled credit cards. i'm sorry, was there something wrong with swiping?
now you want me to slide it in, leave it in, and wait for the light? i hear that enough from my wife. [ laughter and applause ] and why is this technological advancement slower than literally everything that came before it? not like the newest iphone has a rotary dial. also, if you think i'm worried about identity theft, then you don't know seth meyers -- n'aaw. [ laughter ] hey chip-enabled credit cards, you've just been declined, and now ya burnt! [ laughter and applause ] button fly pants. you know you suck when you make people miss interlocking teeth being close to their genitals. [ laughter ] these buttons are not easy enough. going to the bathroom should give me more finger callous' than a bass player. [ laughter ] when i'm done in the bathroom i want to get out of there, not finish a puzzle. nobody wants to be the weirdo at the urinal who's trying to do a rubik's cube without looking. [ laughter ] the only way buttoning up could take longer is if you had to use a chip card. double-burn, chip cards!
>> double burn! [ laughter ] >> seth: zip it, button fly pants! ya burnt! [ applause ] oh, and while we're in the bathroom. hey, automatic hand dryers. blow me. [ laughter ] you sound like a cow getting sucked into a vacuum. yet, the best you can do is change my hands from sopping wet to dripping wet. [ laughter ] and why do you only come in two settings? it's either, 'dog breathing on my hands," or "astronauts face during takeoff." [ laughter ] oh, and automatic paper towel dispensers, you're no better. i have been waving my hand in front of you for ten minutes. do you think i'm a ghost? >> they think that you were dead! >> seth: all right. [ laughter ] automatic hand driers, i may not be dry, but you? ya burnt. [ cheers and applause ] hey, the last supper. what's your deal. take a look at this painting. this is jesus' last meal. couldn't it be something better than just rolls? [ laughter ] have you been to a restaurant? rolls are the free part. did nobody order an on entre? and look out the window, it's still light out.
it's like 1:30 pm. come on jesus, this is a dinner party, not the early bird special. live a little. of course, after this, you didn't. [ audience ohs ] he came back! [ laughter and applause ] and look, jesus, i know you're the important guy here. but you are taking up like three spaces at the table. quit god-spreading, dude. [ light laughter ] no wonder judas dropped a dime on you. [ audience ohs ] the last supper painting, it's too bad you are made out of oil because ya burnt. [ applause ] although, let's be honest. i think i'm the one that's burnt the most on that last one. [ laughter ] easter sunday, christ came back on a sunday. and that's great, but if he waited one more day, and came back on a monday, we'd all have gotten a day off work. [ laughter ] when a holiday is on a sunday, we lose a day off. hey, you know that day you like to relax? good news! now you get to wear a tie and eat ham with your aunt. [ laughter ] >> don't forget the rolls! [ laughter ] >> seth: easter sunday, that ham must be over-cooked because ya burnt!
[ cheers and applause ] next up, easter baskets! [ siren ] uh-oh! oh, no! [ laughter ] ooh! [ laughter ] that sound means that things are really cooking up, which could only mean one thing, it's time for "the blaze!" [ laughter ] and on the blaze we're gonna take crappy easter candy down a peg. first up, cadbury eggs. oh, great. the delicious taste of chocolate, with all the appetizing texture of a raw egg. [ laughter ] salma-no-thanks. ya blazed! [ laughter ] black jelly beans, you're not candy, you're a punishment for not watching what color jelly beans i put in my mouth. ya blazed! [ laughter ] hollow chocolate bunnies. beautiful on the outside. hollow on the inside. what are you, a connecticut housewife? [ laughter ] ya blazed! easter grass! just how i wanted my candy served. on a bed of muppet pubes. [ audience ohs ] [ laughter ] ya blazed! now and laters, how about no and nevers? ya blazed!
[ laughter ] hamantashens? this isn't a purim basket, get out of here you fakaktah pastries! ya blazed! [ laughter ] peeps, no thanks. i still have last year's peeps sitting undigested in my stomach. [ laughter ] oh you know what, on second thought i will take them. i could use some insulation for my house. ya blazed. [ laughter ] up next, the smiles on kids faces. [ buzzer ] uh-oh! that buzzer means we've run out of time. looks like i'll have to give you something to cry about next time.

[ laughter ] >> seth: it's funny because we were talking backstage about larry sanders, which of course, hbo as well. >> yes. >> seth: and so, i think one of the things about hbo from a very young age, we start watching it is that is the network with nudity. >> yes! >> seth: you got to do some nudity. >> yes. >> seth: on "vinyl." >> got to do it. >> seth: congrats. [ laughter ] when you go to an hbo show, what is your expectation of it? >> you will be naked, like, 50% of the time. that is the gift that hbo provides to young people who can stay up late enough to see boobs. >> seth: did you do that?

wake up our parents. we'd be watching, movies with no volume, and you'd see a breast for, like, that long. >> right. >> seth: and we would, celebrate like mission control at nasa.

long time ago."

check this fake merkin out, everyone!" [ laughter ] "it's not real!"

[ laughter ] "this is happening!" i'm a huge sacha baron cohen fan, but a really huge "ali g" fan, and i was so thrilled that he was doing this. and it was literally, as chris rock was saying our names, this was happening. we walked out on stage, and i couldn't contain my glee. >> seth: it was fantastic. watching it you really could tell, "oh, you love this, but you did not know it was going to happen." >> i did not know! >> seth: you were at a one-person surprise party, and it was fantastic.

[ light laughter ] >> seth: that is the most beautiful couple we got going on in this country right now. >> they are. >> seth: did you go to the wedding? >> i went to the wedding. >> seth: how was that? >> oh my god. well, arnold schwarzenegger, i mean -- tatum channing. everybody. did i just say his name backwards? >> seth: yes, you did. >> oh. [ laughter ] >> seth: i will say -- >> i practiced it, too. >> seth: channing tatum is so good looking you do sometimes just flip it. [ light laughter ] you just lose your mind and say it backwards. >> you know, he's like ugly compared to joe. [ light laughter ] >> seth: he is. >> standing next to joe. >> seth: yeah. [ talking over each other ] >> hey, i can be ugly today. [ light laughter ] the craziest thing that's ever happened in my entire life happened to me happened at joe's wedding.
i do everything very last minute and i had exactly enough time to step out of the shower, put on my tux and get downstairs to the wedding. and i opened the closet, pulled out the jacket, and my shoes and the pants were gone. >> seth: no. [ light laughter ] >> there were no pants. i almost burst into tears, i was so upset. and the first 20 minutes of joe's wedding, i was like hyperventilating. >> seth: what happened? >> they didn't come back from the cleaners where they got pressed and i didn't notice. i didn't know. >> seth: did the cleaners manage to get them to you in time? >> they did. >> seth: oh, thank god. >> very last minute. >> seth: so you didn't have to be the guy wearing jeans to the wedding? >> yeah, exactly. >> seth: that's for the best. >> or shorts. [ light laughter ] >> seth: that'd be worse. 30 years since "pee-wee's big adventure." >> who's counting. >> seth: i know. >> you. >> seth: i'm counting. but that movie -- there was nothing like it before it happened. and you wrote it with the late, great, phil hartman. >> yes. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: you had never -- up to that point, had either of you written a screenplay before? >> i had written a screenplay that was really a novel.
>> seth: okay. >> not really a screen play. >> seth: no structure, yeah. >> it was pages of description. we bought the syd field book, a very famous screen writing by syd field. that movie, it's a 90-page script. on page 30, my bike gets stolen, on page 60, it's found. we did exactly what they said in that book. and now it's part of screen writing classes because it's so classic, the structure. >> seth: it's so funny, because you don't think of that movie and say, well it's got that conventional structure. but when you -- [ light laughter ] think about it. it does. >> i just ruined it. >> seth: yeah. there you go. i also want to ask you because you -- the pee-wee character got its start, to some degree, on the show back when david letterman hosted it in the early '80s. >> that's true. >> seth: and you would do pee-wee a lot. you would come on that show and do it a lot. >> i did it every two months for two years. >> seth: wow. >> and i did the opposite of what most comedians do. i didn't have an act. i had no act as pee-wee herman, so i would write stuff specifically for david's show.
and at the end of that two-year period, i went on tour. i got a lot of inquiries, will you come play clubs? and so i took my materials from david's show and that was my act. >> seth: and that's what you started touring pee-wee as. >> yeah. >> seth: that's crazy. >> i love that story. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: there is -- there is a moment in the film, and i have seen you do it on stage, where you make a balloon talk. >> yep. >> seth: i would love to learn how to do this. do you mind giving me a tutorial? >> it's really simple. >> seth: okay, do we have -- want me to give you one of these? okay. >> you can do this at home, if you have a balloon. >> seth: okay. [ light laughter ] >> they are not that hard to get, really. it's just a balloon. so, yeah, it's pretty easy. >> seth: i'll let you know. [ balloon whistles ] >> i mean, i shake it a little bit. [ balloon whistles ]
sometimes i -- sometimes, i'll -- [ balloon whistles ] i have never duetted with anybody, never before, ever. [ laughter ] i'll give you another tip. there's the dirty version. if you push this way, you push in and open it more. [ ballon whistles more ] then you can do it very, very quiet.
